London Calling

This is the kind of stuff that amuses me. A traditional red phone box has been recycled into a phone booth library in a small town in the South of England. The idea was conceived by a local resident as a way to save a bit of history after the village lost its phone box and mobile library.

The library is open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, and lit at night. Users simply stock it with a book they have read (or DVDs), swapping it for one they have not. In order to keep the selection fresh, there’s even a regular check to determine which titles are moving. Hopefully thieves and vandals will stay away.
